The End of the iPhone Hype!

Today I found out that I was due an upgrade on my contract phone. There was the initial excitement of a new phone then there was the confusion of do I go for the same old apple iPhone upgrade or do I be risky and pick a totally different phone.
For the last 5 or so years I have had iPhone and have always upgraded to a newer iPhone when it has been time. I love apple and I have quite a few of their products but I was starting to question whether I want to upgrade to another phone. I love how easy the iPhone is to use and the camera is really great with the majority of the photos I take being taken on my phone. However I do find that I struggle for storage a lot as I do have a lot of photos stored on my phone. Storage is probably the main problem that I have with my iPhone. Also iPhones can be quite expensive.
I went into my local 3 branch and had a look at the phones available so that I could see what they felt like in my hands because some of them are quite big nowadays. I was tempted by a Samsung phone but as I got talking to some of the shop assistants they suggested that I look at the Huawei phones as the camera is really good on them and this is what I use my phone most for.
The minute I stepped into the shop I think I had decided that I didn’t want to continue on the iPhone hype. Not because I don’t love the iPhone but because I had got a little bit bored of having the same phone as when you get the latest version there is never really that much difference in them. I quite enjoy it when I have a phone that I have never used before so I can spend time trying to figure out how to use it.
I ended up picking the Huawei phone and so far I have not been disappointed. The screen is bigger than the iPhone and the picture quality is amazing. I cannot wait to go out and take loads amazing pictures. Also there is so much storage that I should never have a problem again. I am really glad that I decided to take the risk to move away from the iPhone as it is good to try out different phones and this one hopefully will be better for what I use it for.

  1. Regardless of the phone you have, if you get a GMail account you can automatically back up the photos in your phone to the cloud. Depending on how they are stored, there’s no limit. I pay Google $5 a year for 20TB of additional storage. I don’t know if that plan is currently available; it may be grandfathered from when it was offered.

    Flickr also has the option to back up (upload) photos although it might be from the desktop. The free account comes with 1TB worth of storage.

    It’s a good idea to have multiple copies (backups) of your photos.

  2. I am definitely over the iPhone hype, too! I totally agree with everything you said especially about how all of their upgrades are pretty similar. I made the switch to Samsung this year. I’ve never heard of Huawei!!
